    • Do I need to tip my guide and porters? How much would that be?

      This is a difficult thing to gauge. We have seen everything from USD 20 to USD 1000 per person for guides and porters. Tipping is not required, but a small gesture of thanks to your guides and local porters thanks for their help. The level of the tip should reflect the level of satisfaction from and personal involvement with your guide.

      It depends on your spending habits. USD 15 to 20 a day will be enough to buy lunch, dinner, bottles of water, chocolates and a few drinks during the tour.

Credit cards can only be used at some hotels. The Bank of China also accepts credit cards. ATM is not widely available.
